Birth of a Nation

This is a story of the events that lead up to Nat Turner leading a rebellion of the slaves in 1831. I had heard of the movie from multiple sources, so it was time to watch it.

I enjoyed the movie. It was very informative, but I hadn’t realized that it was about an actual event. I learn more and more every day.

This movie is not the same as the 1915 movie starring Lillian Gish. At first, I thought it was a remake and I was expecting a KKK rising any minute. It’s definitely not the remake. I still don’t know that I want to see the 1915 version.
